Founded in March 2017, the Shanghai-registered sale service provider previously featured a line of businesses covering the automobile sale and related after-sale services, the wholesale, online retail, import and export of auto parts and automobile supplies, and the wholesale, online retail, installation and maintenance of distributed AC charging piles.
NIO has already launched the used car service through its App in last November. The newly-added businesses mainly take aim at the buyers who want to replace their old cars with new NIO's vehicles, meaning that NIO will also be responsible for selling those pre-owned cars, and correspondingly shorten and streamline the car shopping process for consumers.
The new businesses will further enrich NIO's customer-centric solutions, which are of great significance to NIO's sales growth. The EV manufacturer said it delivered 10,331 vehicles in the second quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 190.8% year-over-year and an increase of 169.2% quarter-over-quarter. As of June 30, 2020, cumulative deliveries of the ES8 and the ES6 reached 46,082 vehicles, of which 14,169 were delivered in 2020.
